I checked what is goin on in ~/.kde/share/apps/kmail/mail/* directories.
IIRC file that stores read e-mail should have ":2,S" suffix.

And I see here that this suffix is _NOT_ added, no matter if I:
- read the message,
- choose "mark all as read" in apropriate folder
Hovewer in kmails dir/status view, number of unread mail is being refreshed.

So, num_unread_mail != num_files_with_":2,S"_suffix
And obviously, if I visit that directory again - kmail refreshes dir/status view, and this messages re-appear as unread.

The only combination that 'works' is:
1. "mark all as read",
2. "compress folder"
Doing this makes ":2,S" appear where it should be.
But after kmail restart this wrong behaviour returns.
